The ERGObaby company began in 2003 after a mother in Hawaii designed a carrier for her son. She desired to make an ergonomic baby carrier that would meet her baby's needs while she tackled her day to day tasks. Since that time ERGObaby carriers have been sold around the world.
ERGObaby carriers can be used from birth through 45 lbs. If you use these carriers with little ones up to 12 lbs you will need the infant sized insert. ERGO carriers are designed to keep your baby in the correct sitting position. The shoulder straps and the waist belt help spread out your baby's weight to your shoulders and hips. All ERGObaby carriers allow you to carry your baby in the front, on your back, or on your hip. A sleeping hood supports your baby's head for naps. When not in use it can be tucked away.
The Original ERGObaby Carrier is made from 100% cotton with a cotton canvas exterior and a cotton poplin hood and lining. Organic cotton options are also available. The ERGObaby Options Carrier is an all black carrier. Snap on printed covers can be purchased to allow you to change the carrier's look. All of these ERGObaby carriers are part of their Original collection. They all have straight shoulder straps and a standard waist belt.
If you have an active outdoor lifestyle and want a durable carrier consider the ERGObaby Performance Carrier. This breathable carrier has polyester on the outside with a inner mesh lining that will help wick away wetness. An extra cooling panel makes this a great choice for warmer weather. The straps are contoured and this style of carrier has a wider waist belt than the original ERGObaby carrier.
The ERGObaby Sport Baby Carriers are made from a polyester/cotton blend. These carriers are designed to be breathable and cool. The shoulder straps are longer and straighter and the waist belt is wide. This makes the ERGObaby Sport Carriers a good choice for parents with a larger body type.
ERGObaby offers accessories to make baby wearing even easier. The ERGObaby Backpack is perfect for a day's outing or when hiking. It snaps around the straps of the ERGObaby carrier. The ERGObaby Front Pouch and the ERGObaby Changing Pad also attach to the ERGO carrier to allow you to be hands free. When your baby is teething you may find that the ERGObaby Sucking Pads help extend the life of your baby carrier and give your baby something soft to suck on. Covers are also available for wet or winter weather.
